Day of Rest

snowrivertrailI saw this quote from Carl Jung on Facebook the other day, and I can’t stop thinking about it: Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” I have spent so many years looking to others for permission and approval, always having to check in with someone else to be sure I’m okay, needing to take a poll to figure out what to do next. I suppose if this brought me comfort, I wouldn’t question it, but instead I live with a constant anxiety, a low grade depression, a chronic sense of things not being right, of me not being right.

This quote helps to reframe the whole thing. There is no external information or affirmation that will bring me clarity, but if I stay with myself, I can wake up.
